Over the weekend while I was shopping with my sister I added a couple of "coastal" friends to our little beach house.
The man who makes these is in his 80's. He goes out and finds shapes in Cypress wood that look like birds, fish, etc. I go back to the little shop in Englewood, FL that sells his work every month or so to see what's new. So far we've picked up this white pelican and angelfish. I'm still on the lookout for a manatee, dolphin and ray (or whatever else I can't resist)! I think we'll end up putting these in our kitchen over the cabinets. How cute!
I also picked up this apothecary jar. I collected these shells in ONE DAY after Tropical Storm Faye moved through this summer (this jar is almost 2 feet tall and I still have another basket-full)!
